I liked the convenient location next to the mall. We had a great time moving back and forth enjoying the shopping, visiting the sites and swimming in the pool. The best thing about the property are the people who work there. They are helpful and work hard to make your stay pleasant. The wait people in the restaurants are fabulous. I highly recommend this hotel for weekend visits or for conferences.

Other than the Intercontinental brand, which now seems to have driven more customers to the hotel, since reopening as Sandton Towers (part of Southern Sun), the hotel experience is similar to what it was before the pandemic.
